breweries out there this year and beer lands, four of those breweries, they're all northern california with the exception of one. but four were from san francisco proper. and then the wineries, we have 33 wineries out there and they're all from northern california. we're very supportive of the local businesses throughout san francisco, throughout the bay area, and we pay particular attention to the neighborhoods that surround the park because we do understand that those neighborhoods are being impacted most by this event. you know, gordos burritos, [speaker not understood], and they have an extraordinary big weekend in the brick and mortar store as well as on the festival grounds. we have some vendors here today who will speak to that as well as [speaker not understood] feingold who oversees the local restaurants and the restaurant just down the street. >> i appreciate that and that commitment. one of the things i do want to be clear about, the area that i'm really concerned about is the area right on irving street closest to the impacting area where the 25th avenue entrance is. i don'
? >> there have been a number of cases in the bay area and around the nation and in california and in northern california. and what we highlight in the letter are the recent examples in which especially in northern california, the juries are likely to pay out higher settlement amounts and that is something that should concern the supervisors in terms of liability. not only in the cases where a death was caused but in a situation where it was used that it amounted for an accessive use of force. you will have juries around california handing out multimillion-dollar verdicts and cities and counties settling for the officers misusing these die vices and i have no doubt that some of the population, here that would be disproportionately impacted would probably have a problem and file suit. >> in san francisco, we would apply tasers here, we would have rules about how they are used. but, i guess, there is no rules anywhere else about how they are applied because they are cases of possible abuse and settlements or that settlements occurred or does that mean that there are lower standards for how they
into the movement were very successful when the northern california labor councils were the first to actually oppose the vietnam war. with the rise of an organized movement in the gay community in the early 1970's, howard founded the bay area gay liberation inkn 1975, which was to advance lgbt rights here in san francisco. the organization's life was actions for lgbt rights and dramatically increased the san francisco. during that period he formed the committee to defend gays in the military. this was back in the mid-1970's. and he began his work on the boycott in 1975. of course those of us who know a little bit about harvey milk know a little bit about his involvement in that boycott. as howard explains it, they came to harvey milk and howard and asked for their support for this strike and boycott and both harvey and howard endorsed it, which was really key to making the boycott successful because howard, working with harvey milk, used their influence with bartenders and bar owners in the make the boycott successful and it was really the first time where you had that very powerful pairing of the l
to move forward with some very important high speed rail project. the northern california segment is slated to receive $600 million in proposition 1(a) funding as an early investment. many of us are committed to the ultimate success of high speed rail and caltrain electrification and we therefore would like to hear an update on san francisco's participation in this early investment. we understand that the first step is moving forward on long desired electrification of caltrans but we need to know san francisco. we need to know how the city's project, along with our partners project, along with our partners in7 we need to know how we are financing our share of the local match. at this hearing we will discuss next steps and including which agencies are working on this, we can make sure everyone is working3(( byi together. the second hearing request has to do with recent friends in robberies including armed robberies in san francisco. we've seen a spike in a number of robberies, many of them around smart phones and ipads, whether people robbing people on buses. recently in my distri
company and did that for several years. i was actually the legal administrator for northern california operations and chief paralegal and i did that for several years with zenith national insurance company. please don't ask me any insurance questions. as i pointed out earlier, i worked with the community action program which is the equivalent of the economic opportunity council here in san francisco. this was community action commission of santa barbara county, which had control over direct services for the entire county of santa barbara and all the six cities within so we had to cover a substantial amount of area, much larger geographally than san francisco but hardly as dense. so my concerns as a resident in the octavia plan boundaries are the preservation of open space, development of greater community gardening opportunities for low to moderate to affordable income residents, the keeping of upper market street at least as a sunshine corridor so that the building, the new growth and developments occurring along the market street corridor don't overshadow the upper market street.

states attorney here in the northern district of california where ironically handled domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the first response and i think we are disturbed and it's like the knob hill gazette for lawyers but this wa
